"Let Your Mind Quiet Down in the Town of Stillwater"

Aside from its wonderful community center---which offers free wifi and programs like a teen journalism group---the town of Stillwater in Saratoga County offers fantastic camping opportunities near the lovely Stillwater Reservoir, which is a part of the western side of the Adirondacks. Here you can find a myriad variety of outdoor activities such as camping, fishing, rowboting, canoeing, cross-country skiing and snowmobiling in winter. It's a beautiful preserve that's a must-stop when you're here, but that's not all that Stillwater has to offer!

Aside from the town's public library (the Stillwater Free Library) which offers a variety of programs to all involved, kids can enjoy a fun-filled day of outdoors-related games and then board games and pizza at night with their friends or family. There's teens and adult activities too, and adults will enjoy the book club. Stillwater Central School District is a fair 6 out of 10 and the High School/Middle School has subsequently fair reviews; the school has an 82.1% graduation rate. Stillwater Elementary School is supposedly stellar for encouraging responsibility and acceptance of self and others.

In town you'll find Book In Hand, a fun used book store, a Stewart's Shop and a Simply Fun toy shop, that has a fantastic selection of board games and inspirational ideas for family get-together time. As far as restaurants go, you won't be without places to find pizza, and Mechanicsville has wonderful choices outside of town to eat with the entire family (as well as fun night entertainment). Moreno's Pizza has fast deliveries and less expensive prices, but Dom's Pizza Subs and Wings is reported to have the better food in town, unfortunately with more expensive tastes.

Overall Stillwater is a great place to live with a wonderful sense of community, fantastic outdoor recreation and is a pretty safe place to live. Enjoy and don't forget to visit the Saratoga National Historical Park before you leave!
